Hello. It's me, again.

Our lovely director David Ayer just released a new poster for his upcoming, sure-to-be-at-least-a-cult-hit movie, Suicide Squad.

Looking at that poster, it made me thing once again (because obviously, you have to had thought about it before as well)...

Who is going to bite the bomb to the neck in the movie.

I decide to do a bit of a breakdown as to why a character will either live thought or die in the movie.

First off we start with:

The Joker

(New Joker wearing Old Joker's head as a mask)
(New Joker wearing Old Joker's head as a mask)

I'm not going to dwell on this one much because it's obvious that he's NO WAY IN HELL going to be killed off this early on.

Jared Leto's choice for the Joker wasn't just a random pick. They picked him because of his Method acting and him being an Oscar winner doesn't hurt.

He has been able to change beyond recognition before and he can do it here as well.

When you look at the Joker, you don't see Jared. Not even a glimpse of the Rockstar.

What you see is a psychopath who's so disturbed that he tattooed Damaged on his head. (Yeah... not letting that one go, Ayer.)

Harley Quinn

Margot Robbie's Harley Quinn will be the first live action iteration of the character.

Not only is she one of the leads in this movie, but she's also the side-kick to Leto's Joker, further solidifying her invulnerability and proneness to being killed off.

Margot has already proven that she can pull off a HARD Boston accent and I have no doubt that her performance will outshine even someone who I'm about to talk about.


Deadshot is portrayed by Will Smith in this movie.

Your first indicator that this character might NOT die is that you cast someone like Will Smith in the first place. BUT that could also mean that it COULD be the reason you cast someone like him.

Now, just to point out, I do have a problem with Will Smith being cast as Deadshot, but that's for another time.

Will Smith is a solid actor who plays... Will Smith in most of his roles.
That is what I usually believe, but in his latest movie Concussion, he shows that if he tries, he can do more.

Do I think he will do the same thing here? Heck no. What I saw from the trailer. Will Smith will be playing Will Smith and if what we know of Will Smith, He won't be wearing the Deadshot mask most of the time, like Deadshot usually does.

(well, it seems like I DID just point out why I didn't like his casting...)

Anyways. The reason why he could not be killed is because they signed him to appear in a Batman movie, but I highly doubt he'll be a villain once again based on what we've seen from the trailer, which indicates him having a redemption arc due to him trying to be with his daughter and all.

Would you like to see Batman kick Will Smith's ass who's just doing what he's doing for his Daughter?

And that is the reason why he COULD be killed off... which also puts us in a very interesting spot because that would mean that his redemption arc didn't go through and it would be a waste of time and a very bold movie.

Most likely, he'll LIVE THROUGH and never be seen again. Maybe heard of, but never seen.

Captain Boomerang

"You know what they say about the crazy ones."
"You know what they say about the crazy ones."

Oy, y'know 'ho Cap'n Digger Harkness is, mate?

Well you should.

Digger Harkness a.k.a Captain Boomerang is one of Flash's ARCH NEMESIS.

If that alone doesn't tell you if he'll live or die, you need to ... I don't know... realize and stuff.

This is NOT Boomerang's first portrayal in live action, but it's the closest to his CANON look as they've gotten.

The person portraying him this time is Jai Courtney. A name dragged through mud for dumb reasons.

He's an Australian actor who's personality and acting ethics fit Digger PERFECTLY.

There isn't much else to say except that he is not going to get killed. He is going to be the comic relief of the Squad and he WILL face off against Flash when the time comes.

I have high hopes for Jai's performance as Captain Boomerang.

Killer Croc

Waylon Jones a.k.a Killer Croc went through an accident that made him in to what he is today... but you aren't here for a history on one of Batman's most decorated villains. You're here to read about whether he'll make it and I have some good news for you.

He is... maybe.

Bare with me here. Now, don't get me wrong. I'd love NOTHING MORE than to see Adewale's Killer Croc go up against Bruce Wayne's Bat--- Wait.. I meant Ben Affleck's Batman, but there's a little thing that I feel like every Ayer movie has.

A Sad. Sympathetic death.

ONE of these characters most likely has to bite it in a heroic way for the rest to survive.

Killer Croc, similar to Deadshot or Clayface, have somewhat tragic stories.

I, for one, unlike a lot of people, do like the look of this Killer Croc and would like to see more of him, but like I said. SOMEONE has to die in this movie and as much as I think he could EASILY survive it, THAT is one reason why he could become a casualty of the tragic sympathetic death that Ayer is known for.

The last few I won't spend much time talking about:

Rick Flag Jr.

Rick Flag Jr. is going to be the commanding officer of the mission.

He indeed has a change of kicking the bucket but ONLY at the end of them movie, say... being killed by Boomerang so they can escape.


Katana is playing the enforcer role for Rick Flag Jr.

Honestly, I don't know. Her death would feel meaningless and it wouldn't make much difference in the general scope.

Don't think he's dying.

El Diablo & Slipknot

These are the two most expandable characters of all.

I bet my money on Slipknot to die first, but there's a high chance that El Diablo is getting it as well.

And last, but not least. The presumed villain on this movie...


As the presume villain, I see no other way of ending this movie than by killing her.

We're talking about villains being recruited for a mission to stop another person (presumably)

What? Are they just going to capture her and go back to their cells?


Anyways, thank you all for reading another random post by THIS GUY.

I hope to start writing more and more as time goes, since we're getting in to the year of comics pretty strong with Deadpool.
